Last seen at Sadler’s Wells in 2012, the world-famous company led by Helgi Tomasson, San Francisco Ballet, is back in London with four thrilling triple bills.

Each of the programmes is entirely composed of work created since their last visit, with an astonishing eight pieces premiered in 2018 alone, all by some of the greatest and most exciting choreographers working today, including Alexei Ratmansky, Cathy Marston, Christopher Wheeldon and Liam Scarlett.
